Extendscript fails when applying profile to newly copied icc

Hi.

 

I have created a script where upon opening a Photoshop scene, an icc profile will be copied to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Color\Profiles". This icc profile will then be applied through a snipped of code obtained from the Script Listener plugin. This snippet was acquired through running "View>Proof Setup>Custom...". My script will fail at the point where the profile is being applied, however it seems to work if the custom profile dialog is opened, closed and the script is run again. It seems like Photoshop needs to initialise newly copied icc profiles and this is happening when the dialog is opened, but I'm not entirely sure.

 

This is being run on Windows 7, Photoshop CS6 v13.0

 

To replicate:

  • Whilst running Photoshop, copy an icc profile into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Color\Profiles".
  • Use the function below, passing the copied profile name through it. This should fail.
  • Open "View>Proof Setup>Custom..." and close.
  • re-run the function.
function applyProfile(profile_name){
    var idproofSetup = stringIDToTypeID( "proofSetup" );
    var desc36 = new ActionDescriptor();
    var idprofile = stringIDToTypeID( "profile" );
    desc36.putString( idprofile, profile_name );
    var idpreserve = stringIDToTypeID( "preserve" );
    desc36.putBoolean( idpreserve, true );
    executeAction( idproofSetup, desc36, DialogModes.NO );
}

 If anyone has any insight into this, it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you!

What is the exact problem you're trying to solve with this profile? What does it do that standard profiles don't? And why do you need to load it every time?

Probably the profile has to be loaded into that folder not while launching Photoshop but earlier.

Yes, I get that, but to me it sounds like he's chasing a red herring to fix a broken monitor profile. There might be a much simpler solution to this, but then we need to know what this profile is supposed to do.

Will not help. The problem is old and there is no solution yet.

Refresh ICC Profile List during Runtime

Ahhh damn. This is a shame. I can't imagine there's a solution to this in sight either.

 

Thanks for the update. I will create a wrapper around photoshop when scenes are launched, profiles can be copied over before launching.

 

Thank you all.

Yes, really, it does not work.

Now I double-checked it. Probably the last time I missed something when I checked it.

Sorry for the false hopes...

EDIT: someone moved this thread back to discussions area, WHY?

Can you try { executeAction( idproofSetup, desc36, DialogModes.NO ); } catch(e) { executeAction( idproofSetup, desc36, DialogModes.ALL ); } And does it select your profile then? Maybe an alert before to tell the user to "just press the ok" button. I know this would not work in a 'no dialog' workflow but wonder if the workaround would even work.
